"Los Angeles Lakers superstar talked to CNN Turk reporter Barbaros Tapan, you can find his statements about his future plans and his flirt with Turkish team Besiktas last season during the lock-out. “My aim is to play until I’m 40 years old and I believe I can do that. This year, we added very good players to our squad. Steve Nash, Dwight Howard will make us stronger. Right now, things are not going very well but I believe it’ll get better soon.” TrendBasket"

He'll probably play in Europe for some time after he's done in the NBA, so he probably won't play for the Lakers till he's 40.

Told everyone if Kobe feels like he could play at a top level and contend for championships he'll play till he gets Russel's record :laughing:

Getting Dwight and Nash (Dwight in particular) added years to his career, if we get Irving/Love in 2 years it will add more. Kobe isn't retiring till he can no longer play at a high level (knock on wood) hopefully that's not anytime soon.
 

I've always liked Steve Blake.

This. It's a simple concept, really. Kobe is still putting up 40 points and can do so any game if he chooses to take over. It will be when he has to go all out just to skim 25 points, when he'll consider retiring.

He is probably better than 80% of the current players in the NBA even when he's 40. However, I think a lot of Lakers fans here will push Kobe out for Lebron James any day of the week. I would love Kobe to stay as a Laker as long as we want though.

MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.
